LoveReading View on A Shame to Miss Poetry

Age 14+. Former Children’s Laureate Anne Fine’s own passion for poetry spills out of this collection and its pair. Choosing a dazzling selection of poems from across the centuries – some very well-known and others less so - Anne Fine has gifted readers ready access to the treasure trove of poems that she loves herself. In her added notes to some of the poems, she offers useful background information and a glossary of the less familiar words. Both volumes are an ideal and handy way into poetry for all.
